The Lord of the Rings
Original Motion Picture Soundtrack by Leonard Rosenman
1978: Intrada/Fantasy FMT 8003D
A generally good soundtrack to a film that was a fair attempt, for its day, at bringing LotR to the screen. However, as with the films merits, the soundtrack too pales into absolutely ridiculous insignificance compared to Howard Shores masterpiece for Peter Jacksons films in 20012003. If you can block those out of your mind and listen to this on its own, its not bad, although it has some mighty weak spots, but the difficulty is in that first step .
